(Oct. 22, 2013) -- The UTSA Downtown Campus will host its inaugural Homecoming Pep Rally at noon, Wednesday, Oct. 23 at Bill Miller Plaza. The free and public event is part of UTSA Homecoming Week, Oct. 20-26.

The UTSA Downtown Campus will be showered in blue and orange in show of solidarity for the Roadrunners' big game against the University of Alabama–Birmingham (UAB). The entire UTSA community is invited to "Pack the Plaza" as a sign of spirit and support for 2013 Roadrunner Football.

"The Homecoming Pep Rally is a wonderful way for the community to experience the real spirit and pride throughout the UTSA campuses," said Keith Pilger, coordinator of student activities at the UTSA Downtown Campus. "We invite all Roadrunners to attend and support the efforts of our football team as they face off against the UAB Blazers this Saturday."

Joe Reinagel, KENS TV sports director, will be the master of ceremonies for the event. Head Football Coach Larry Coker, now in his third season as coach of the UTSA football program, UTSA Director of Athletics Lynn Hickey and players from the 2013 Roadrunners football team will offer brief remarks.

Additionally, the UTSA Spirit of San Antonio Marching Band will perform the UTSA Fight Song and other selections for attendees. The UTSA cheerleaders and Rowdy will lead the crowd in cheers supporting the players.

Following the rally, student organizations will participate in the inaugural "Spirit Lighting -- How Do You Shine at UTSA?" tree-lighting competition. Each organization will decorate and light up one of 12 trees in Bill Miller Plaza using orange and blue LED lights to symbolize their UTSA spirit.

Since 1985, UTSA Homecoming has given past and present Roadrunners the opportunity to celebrate UTSA's growth as a university, connect with fellow UTSA supporters and take part in time-honored traditions.

For the complete list of events, traditions and history, visit the UTSA Homecoming 2013 website.
